Beautiful Waterfalls in Fujinomiya

Shiraito Falls and Otodome Falls

By Cathy Cawood    - 1 min read

These two waterfalls are within a few minutes walk of each other, and are listed among 'Japan's Top 100 Waterfalls'. On clear days there is a good view of Mount Fuji from here. There are souvenir and produce stores and restaurants next to the trail. You can take a bus from Fujinomiya Station to the falls, or if you are driving get off the motorway at Fuji I.C. and park in one of the areas available.

 I came to Japan in 2003 to teach English. I lived in Shiga prefecture for 1 year, and it still holds a special place in my heart. I lived in Kyoto for 9 years, then moved to Machida, Tokyo in 2014 after meeting my Japanese partner. I love to take photos, and my Japan in Pictures Facebook page has some 40,000 followers. I have been the Regional Partner for Yamanashi Prefecture since 2014.I am enjoying exploring the prefectures around Tokyo (I like to get off the beaten track), and I hope the photos and stories I share will encourage more people to discover this wonderful country.
